About the Company

Home Depot is built on self-reliance. Founders Bernie Marcus and Arthur Bank left their old posts at an aging home improvement shop and started realizing the vision of a home improvement store that not only provided parts and tools, but knowledge and expertise, a helping hand that could not only sell a product, but teach a skill. In 1979, Marcus and Bank went to investment bankers Ken Langone and Pat Farrah for help with opening up the first two storefronts for what would become Home Depot. T...

Intern Reviews

  • "Company set expectations of a healthy work/life balance. The company enforced that lunch be taken and that all communications would be sent, received and answered only during paid hours, never outside of paid hours. Strict adherence to a 40-hour work week was applied."
  • "Everyone I have talked to gives absolutely glowing reviews about the work/life balance at my company and explains how the company treats them very well. Have yet to hear a single negative thing about the culture/environment and how the company makes them feel."
  • "The Home Depot instills a strong culture in their associates. It is present in every meeting and interaction that you have with individuals. With their open-door policy, interns can feel comfortable approaching any manager or associate at The Home Depot with questions and concerns. They make you feel included and welcome to the program right away."
  • "No more than 40 hours per week (No overtime allowed), very pro work/life balance. My boss always made sure I took a lunch break and wasn't working past 5:30pm. Quality of life was great! I was a student during my internship and my boss made sure I still enjoyed my summer off from school. This was pre-COVID time as well and we were not allowed to bring work home (which was a plus)."

Why Intern Here

The pandemic shifted our summer plans, but it also gave us a chance to show our interns how we solve problems, think creatively, and adapt to unexpected situations. From the comfort of their screens, our interns met company leaders, collaborated with each other on major projects, and even had game days to get to know each other. 

Our interns own projects from start to finish. As the 12 weeks fly by, they apply what they know, pick up new skills, and collaborate with people across the company to make their projects come to life. It’s a great way to meet our leaders and learn valuable leadership lessons from some of the best in the business.

Come see what it’s like to work at the world’s #1 home improvement retailer.

Getting Hired Here

  • "There were 3 interviews--2 were personal with the emphasis on getting to know us as people, and the last was a financial case study, which to me, was very easy. Home Depot is more interested in finding interns with a diverse set of backgrounds(worked in store previously, education levels, race, gender etc.) than taking the people with the highest grades they could find."
  • "The individual who interviewed me and ended up being my mentor has been amazing. During the interview process he made sure to understand what skills I had and how they would be applicable to the internship. One of the best interview processes I have been a part of. I understand it was a very selective process as thousands of applicants apply every year."
  • "The interview process consisted of a case study, a behavioral interview, and an excel test. This is specific for my role, and overall a fairly intense process, but it was enjoyable. I had lots of information about the interviewers as well as what to expect in the interview."
  • "Very accessible interview process, where the focus was on my knowledge regarding the internship topic, and my fit with the team. There weren't any lofty technical interviews or coding tests that were unrelated to the internship."
